Are you still seeing this with the current packages?
Comment 2 Ngo Than 2002-08-27 14:07:18 EDT
it's fixed in kdelib/kdebase 3.0.3-6 or newer
Comment 3 Ben Levenson 2002-09-05 17:39:19 EDT
After specifying a host and port, I am presented with the "Remote IPP printer
selection" screen. There are no printers listed, and clicking <next> tells me 
that I need to select a printer to proceed.
(Then again, I have never used this tool, so I might be doing something wrong)
FWIW, I was able to add a cups printer w/ cupsconfig: 
    HP LaserJet Series Cups v1.1

Comment 4 Phil Knirsch 2003-01-23 10:42:48 EST
I really suspect a problem with the general usability of kprinter in that
respect to be honest.

You're doing everything right (i tried it too), but i can configure printers now
fine with the tool (although not very intuitively) without it crashing.

So i'm closing this bug as kprinter really doesn't crash anymore. :-)

Read ya, Phil
